    Subject[patch 7/9] kdump: Trigger kdump via panic notifier chain on s390
    From: Michael Holzheu <>

    On s390 we have the possibility to configure actions that are executed in
    case of a kernel panic. E.g. it is possible to automatically trigger an s390
    stand-alone dump. The actions are called via a panic notifier. We also want
    to trigger kdump via the notifier call chain. Therefore this patch disables
    for s390 the direct kdump invocation in the panic() function.
